If your bluetooth is enabled on your T39, and your pins are the same,
you should be allowed to pair your devices. I think the problem could be
with your bluetooth stack on the pc. Perhaps you cant find your phone,
since your scanning period is too short. if you activate BT on your
wifes phone, can she see your phone (and vice versa)? It should help
with your problem elimination routine. As for the lack of services on
your T39...
well back in the days of developement those were the only standards that
were made final. since then a whole host of new profiles have become
avaiable.
Once windoze finds your BT device, you should see all the profiles it is
advertising. Now if your phone doesnt advertise a Serial Port, I doubt
if that phone program will work. Since all the commands send via BT from
those programs are just AT commands which are issued via the Serial port
(like the cables at the bottom of the phone). So no serial profile...no
AT commnands... no remote phone operation.

Bottom line... you at least have the best make of phone!
